Diversity of Data: RDA in the international context

This one-day conference will be held on 23 August 2018 at the National Library of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur and is organised by the RDA Board.

The Conference will benefit both RDA users and non-users. It will cover the latest developments in the RDA cataloguing standard, providing a forum for discussion, learning and sharing. There will be a focus on the potential of RDA for libraries in non-English speaking countries and information about the latest developments in the RDA standard and the Toolkit.

There will be sessions on the international uptake and implementation of RDA, with speakers from around the world highlighting different implementation experiences. Experts will give an in-depth demonstration of the new RDA Toolkit and explore RDA in a multilingual world where cataloguing traditions and practices may vary from country to country. There will be presentations on features that support translations, RDA’s ability to accommodate local practices in a global context and its potential for use in a linked data environment.

The program will feature speakers from around the world with the opportunity to meet and network with experienced RDA implementers.

There is no fee to attend the event, but advance registration is required.
